Prague – In March, 23 people died in traffic accidents in the Czech Republic, which is about a third less than last year. There are also significantly fewer seriously injured than a year ago. This follows from preliminary statistics on the police website and information from ČTK. Last March, 34 people died on Czech roads. The total number of tragic accidents for this March may be changed by other possible accidents today.

Roughly seven dozen people were seriously injured in March this year, compared to more than a hundred last year. The number of seriously injured as well as the number of dead is about a third less than in March 2023.

So far, the last tragic accident this March was an accident in Pardubice, where a driver died after hitting a fence in Ve Lhotkách Street. Another accident today happened shortly after midnight in Brno. A passenger car in Sportovní ulica went off the road to a construction site. One person died and two others ended up in hospital with injuries after the car crashed into the traverse.
